Ahead of Boise Visit, X Ambassadors Talks Aspirational New Album
11/16/2019 2:30pm

X Ambassadors plays The Knitting Factory on Saturday, Nov. 16. Monumental life changes happen to bands just like they happen to people. Just ask X Ambassadors keyboardist Casey Harris, who has seen his band shrink, grow and mature. Those big changes had a heavy influence on the bands 2019 album, Orion. This album really represents where we are now and where we are going in the future, he said, adding that songs like Hey Child resemble a breakup album. Since the release of VHS in 2015, X Ambassadors, which will play at Boises Knitting Factory on Saturday, Nov. 16, has gone through an emotional rollercoaster. Its members parted ways with a bandmate and longtime friend over substance abuse issues, and lead singer and Caseys brother Sam Harris got married. Casey welcomed a baby boy into the world. Just like the new arrangement of the band, the new album is aspirational, and Casey said hed even named his son Orion after the constellation. Thats basically because Im a space nerd, said Harris. Little things like that, he said, contribute to our forward-looking future and perspective. The band tours heavily to stay in front of fans, not relying on album sales to keep up its popularity, and the band has a bevy of quirks and rituals that make life on the road more comfortableincluding a prayer they say before every set. We say the shehecheyanu. Its a Jewish prayer of starting new things, said Casey.

Longtime Boise Library Director Announces Retirement
11/15/2019 1:39pm

Kevin Booe has been at the helm of the library since 2007. In his tenure at the Boise Public Library, Kevin Booe has seen it grow hand in hand with the city. Stemming from one downtown location, the library has blossomed into branches around Boise, including one at the airport. At a Library Board of Directors meeting on Nov. 14, he announced that he would step down at the end of December. I have been privileged and honored to serve Boise citizens and library customers, Booe wrote in a release. Booe was appointed as assistant director in 1998, and took the top spot in 2007. Under Booes purview, the library has seen a 23 jump in daily visits, and a 56 jump in borrowing, according to the release. Kevin has been instrumental in developing Boises master facility plan since we started working together in 2004, Mayor Dave Bieter wrote. He has built a world-class library system that our whole city can be proud of. I want to thank him for his leadership and dedicated years of service to the well-being and education of Boiseans of all ages. Library trustees will begin the search for Booes interim and permanent replacements in December.

Terms of Service
11/13/2019 5:05am

Boise gear shop caught in the Backcountry.com copyright strike Tyson Stellrecht opened an outdoor gear shop in Eagle around 2008 called Backcountry Pursuit. He later moved that store to Boise, nestling it on Capitol Boulevard near Julia Davis Park in 2012. Five years later, the company suddenly changed its name to Boise Gear Collective. The public would later learn that the change was motivated by a copyright strike handed down to Stellrecht from Backcountry.com, an outdoor gear behemoth based out of Salt Lake City. Instead of trying to fight the teams of corporate attorneys as a small business, Stellrecht decided to rebrand. Thus, the Boise Gear Collective was born. Certainly I can say that we like our new name and we found a way to turn something that was a negative thing into a very positive thing, he said. So looking at it through the lens of we were going through this massive expansion and changing our entire business model and adding the service and really changing who we are and what we do, still staying focused on used and consignment... but choosing to really embrace this bad thing that happened. Stellrecht said he has come out clean on the other side. In fact, he and the patrons of the Boise Gear Collective like the new name, and as a business, its going better than ever, he said. The former Backcountry Pursuit wasnt the only company called upon to change its name. Shops and retailers across the country bearing the name Backcountry were asked to rebrand. Just like Stellrecht, many complied. We came out on the other side and its a true victory for small business, he said. To Stellrechts mind, the name change has been welcomed by his customers. There has been an outpouring of support from the local outdoor community, which has even been overwhelming at times, but the Boise Gear Collective is charging ahead. With this thing, I didnt have a choice in the matter. I didnt have the money to fight, he said. Stellrecht and others have been able to adapt to the changes, but one shop that chose to fight it landed in federal court: Marquette Backcountry, a small manufacturer based in Michigan that only makes two products, skis and a large water jug. Backcountry.com has since dropped the lawsuit against the small business. However, the online retailer hasnt walked away from its lawsuits against small companies with backcountry in their names unscathed. It
